Selling shaatnez clothing


Jews are biblically prohibited from wearing garments which contain wool and linen. [The prohibition may only be rabbinic, depending on how the wool and linen are blended.]

A Jew may not sell clothing to other Jews if there is a real possibility that it might contain shaatnez. If he warns them, and they are likely to check it out, then he may do so.

A Jew may sell clothing to Jews who won't check it, if the possibility of shaatnez is very small.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:72)

Have a great day,
